If makabra weapons will be equal to other items we can get in game then no one will buy makabra weapons and it will be simply a waste of time lvling those. This is why makabra weapons must remain as "better" even if its just ap that makes them special.
Then that makes the statement that makabras won't be better than other level 100 items an outright lie. We already pay for game time, we should not have to pay for power, as well.
Makabras should be convenience only. You would level them because it means you don't have to go looking for another item until you want more power. In an ideal world however, they would not level as they do and snap to your current level. Evolving weapons, if they're in, SHOULD be the strongest in game-- but they should not be sold in the boutique.
Not to mention that Makabra items have made the weapon crafting professions (except Close Combat, and even then, only for daggers) entirely useless.
